A surefire way to kill creativity

Posted: 18 December, 2014 in Uncategorized

I’ve been slack with my blog this year. Well, that’s not entirely true. I have been writing quite a few blog entries but I haven’t published them.

When I started out I was hoping to write about writing and inspiring others to write. While this has been my main focus I’ve since realised this is not my only focus. If a non-writing related topic came up I would write about it but not publish it, fearing it wouldn’t fit with the overall theme of my blog.

But holding back like this is stifling for a writer. And stifling any part of a creative process is the first step to killing it completely.

My writing is diverse and I can lose focus but, regardless of the topics I cover, as long as I keep writing and publishing I will continue to  improve and gain confidence as a writer. That is my overall goal here.
I don’t want to be limited by something as trivial as my blog name or outline.

I’m determined to publish more regularly but I will be covering a broader range of topics. Nothing will be off limit. The point will be to publish, not limit myself to a single-topic blog.

Here’s to a productive new year and a fresh outlook on my writing life.
